Abstract In modern medicine replacement of biological tissue is important issue. Different biomaterials on the basis of hydroxyapatite play a significant role in the creation of artificial materials for replacing bone tissue. The present study describes technology for obtaining natural hydroxyapatite from natural bone tissue. Next, on the basis of Natural hydroxyaptite and polymethylmetacrilate different versions of new composite biomaterial is created. The structure of this material has been investigated by the method of optical microscopy and also mechanical properties for new material modifications is determened.
